    About Me

    I have helped numerous people improve their spoken English and this has been mainly for professional reasons and sometimes social reasons. I don't have a fixed method, rather relying on the intended occasion to dictate what we learn and talk about. This might be too relaxed for a structured student but works well with business people and those who mix in social and work circles where good English would be advantageous. Father with two daughters aged in their early twenties.

    Education

    Private preparatory school followed by five years at Stowe school, Buckingham, England and then one year up at Cumbria University in the Lake District where I studied with trainee teachers.

    Experience / Qualifications

    Management in electronics businesses. Coaching and teaching part time at UK boarding school and Technical College including adult engineering and IT training.
    Let's establish if I could help you with your spoken English. Meet up in central Basel, anywhere you like, and we'll talk for ten/fifteen minutes in English. No charge for this and no obligation to take a class afterwards. However it will help me to establish how good your English really is and suggest whether further lessons would be useful or not.

    English conversation, homework help and thesis correction
    When learning a new language the most important thing to do is practice. This class is designed to help you do just that. You will be practicing with a British English native speaker. The class will be entirely in English and will go at your own pace. The idea is to practice the English that you know and improve your confidence when conversing or writing. The class will be based in your own home where you feel most comfortable and the aim is to create an easy and open environment for you to practice. We will do a range of activities depending on what best suits you or your children. This will include playing games, singing songs (optional), having a conversation about your interests, helping you with homework or thesis and more, the ideas come from you depending on what area you want to improve upon. (The price for solely correcting a thesis is negotiable)
